    It's not to be taken at face value without additional research, that's for sure.

    There are less than half a dozen cities in America where most of those shootings happen. If we eliminated them, America would be one of the safest places to live. Oh. BTW, those same cities have some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. Kinda shoots your argument in the foot. Doesn't it? LOLOL!

    And you blame the guns. That's your problem. You don't think. Regardless of what happens in Las Vegas, or anywhere else, the fact remains that there is a city with a large number of firearms and no murders in a 25 year period. Proof that guns are not the problem. You lose.

    Yeah, and NV is also one of the few states where it is legal to own machine guns. Matter of fact, they have some of the most lax gun laws in the country.

    Wonder if there is a connection between the state allowing machine gun ownership and this shooting?

    Las Vegas Gun Laws: Open Carry, Machine Guns Legal

    Nevada has some of the most-relaxed gun laws in the country, a legislative condition that is sure to come under renewed scrutiny in the wake of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history on Sunday night in Las Vegas.

    Nevada law does not require firearms owners to have licenses, register their weapons, or limits the number of firearms an individual posses. Automatic assault weapons and machine guns are also legal in the state as long as they are registered and are possessed in adherence to federal law, according to the National Rifle Association.

    Nevada does not prohibit the transfer or possession of assault weapons, 50 caliber rifles or large capacity ammunition magazines. Local law enforcement issues concealed handgun licenses. Open carry is legal without a permit.

    It's a small city with less than 50k people. Also, it's not required that every head of household have a gun.
